Kimberly Mazza posted a 28.34 time in the 50 yard free to give the Golden Eagles their second first-place finish through the first three events, and later Zollo would claim her second win of the afternoon with a time of 1:09.86 in the 100 butterfly.

Additional first-place finishes were had by Mazza (6:14.77) in the 500 free and the 200 freestyle relay team of Garvey, Zollo, Mazza and Lorraine Diehl.

"We had a great meet," said head coach Stephanie Palmeri after her side earned its third-straight victory. "The team is really starting to understand how to race each event and our results are showing that."
